Reports of our Death, Greatly Exaggerated

Africa is not and has never been “doomed.” The greatest threat to its well being however, is and always has been, those who teach that it is or has been, who usually end up contributing to the forces and theories and ideologies and institutions that SEEK to doom it, despite its destiny.

If you had a physical disease, would you listen and be inclined to continue seeing the doctor who does nothing except tell you that you were going to die or instead to the one busy trying strategies to preserve your life and its quality? Well, maybe I would die, but you can rest assured I will have a really nice funeral with the money I saved by not going to any appointments to see or be “treated” by that first kind of fool. There is nothing revolutionary about that kind of defeatist mentality.
